Acer on Tuesday launched a mannequin new 24.5-inch gaming monitor, the Predator XN253Q X, with one amongst many quickest response instances nevertheless. That’s geared up you flip the swap for what Acer is asking “overdrive mode.” Do it’s a must to do, the native 1ms GTG (gray-to-gray) response time can go as little as 0.4ms.

How precisely is that potential? That could be a very good query, and I’ve reached out to Acer for clarification. An earlier model of the corporate’s press release referenced one issue known as “VRB” (seen response improve), nonetheless I have been instructed that in overdrive mode, the 0.4ms measurement continues to be information of a precise GTG score. No humorous enterprise, in quite a few phrases.

A couple of utterly completely different monitor makers have touted sub-1ms response instances before this new Predator monitor debuted. LG, for instance, simply currently rolled out an IPS current with a sub-1ms response time, nonetheless that’s an MPRT (movement image response time) measurement.

There’s not a ton of particulars about all this accessible available on the market, nonetheless in step with DisplayLag, MPRT entails flickering the backlight on and off at a fast worth to cut once more the notion of movement blur. This has its professionals and cons. It is potential that Acer’s overdrive mode achieves its “as loads as 0.4ms” response time equally, although that’s not solely clear within the interim.

Regardless, the Predator XN253Q X is a quick monitor regardless of the method you slice it. Even at 1ms, movement blur shouldn’t rear its undesirable head. On extreme of that, Acer’s new current has a 240Hz refresh worth. That seemingly makes it an exquisite various for esports gaming, if in case you’ve got the {{{hardware}}} to push ultra-high framerates at 1080p (this monitor’s native willpower).

G-Sync assistance is a part of the bundle as correctly. And it has a 400 nits brightness score, which is respectable. That talked about, that is utilizing a TN panel, so coloration accuracy is liable to be inferior to most IPS reveals. Viewing angles furthermore take a comparative hit—on this case, they verify in at 170 ranges horizontal and 160 ranges vertical.

Connectivity selections embrace HDMI 1.Four and DisplayPort 1.2. There’s furthermore a built-in 4-port USB 3.Zero hub, and a pair of built-in 2W audio system.

Do it’s a must to’re on this monitor, it is potential you may seize it on Amazon for $499.99, although it is principally a preorder—provide is quoted as being “inside one to 2 months.”
